Wonderful state park with so much to do! We had a full hook up site which was semi shaded. The electric worked well. Verizon cell service was strong.

It was great walking the dogs through the trails to the beach and being able to have them with us all day. We rode our bikes on the bike trail to Murrell's Inlet. It's about 2 miles to the seafood market and 4 miles to the Marshwalk. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Large CG with well paved roads, sites dirt-gravel and variably level-unlevel. Moderate number trees and lots of grass between sites which aare nicely spaced. Bathhouse we used is worn and needs upgrading, though fairly clean. No soap, paper towels or hand dryer blower. By the sandy dunes and white sand beach. Woodland walks and lots of bike paths. A good nature center by a board walk on the esturary and a long entrance causeway with sidewalks on both sides connecting to the mainland. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A main attraction is the vast beautiful Brookgreen Gardens just across the 17 N highway entrance to the CG. The gardens with trees, flowers, formal gardens, wildlife zoos, playgrounds, and sculptures all over the place is a real GEM, with a $13 senior entry fee. The Huntington were a rich couple who in thte 1920 boought 4 old rice plantations and eventually this became the Brookgreen gardens. Mrs. H. was a famous figure sculpturist and her and others artists works are displayed throught out the gardens and in galleries. The gardens are the reason the CG gets its $55/night CG fee.

We stayed here for 4 nights and are already planning on returning later in the spring. The sites are large, and easy to back into. The walkway to the beach was very well made, takes you through some marsh and over the dunes. Lot of birds and wild life to observe and very good trails that were well marked. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great restaurants close by.

First....I guessed on the price, as I don't remember. OK, so this was a tough review to write. Huntington Beach is one of our favorite SC parks. The location and beach are perfect, but the infrastructure is starting to fail. While we were there, we were on two sites. The 30 amp receptacle on the 1st site started smoking and sparking when we plugged in, and had to be replaced by the ranger. Our next site was fine for a couple days, but then started cycling the power because of a loose neutral...again fixed by park staff. While we were on this site, the 30 amp pedestal on the site next to us actually caught on fire...causing damage to the occupants dogbone adapter...fortunately we got their rig unplugged in time. That was what we saw...but heard of other issues on other sites. So...a great location, beach and some very nice sites...but BEWARE THE PEDESTAL. On the plus side, they are going to begin construction on a new 50 amp loop on the south side of Atalyia in December of this year. Additionally, wifi has been expanded withn the campground and is now accessible from campsites. Without power problems, I would give this park an 8....but they need to spend some money on it. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The best part of this place is the beach and Brookgreen Gardens across the street. Our site was in deep woods which made it quite dark in the rainy weather we experienced. Many other sites are more open, which means you look at your neighbors. Staff in office were indifferent at check-in. Water and electric worked well. Verizon mifi and cell worked well. US 17 which runs by the park is a high speed, narrow, no shoulder four lane road. Could not make a left turn towing the car on departure. Too dangerous. Had to drive three miles north to the first light to make a safe U-turn to head south. Would not return. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This park was very well maintained, neat and clean. The beach is absolutely beautiful and not crowded at all. There are two beach access points from the campground and we used both, but the access point near site 9 is much easier to use and provides a wide walkway all the way to the beach, showers and a bike rack. The access near site 35 is more of a nature walk to the beach, beautiful and worth the visit, but we had a cart and bikes, so the first was the best for us. Our site, no.110 was nice and shaded and one of the more private sites, but we had to pull closer to the center of the site leaving less room under our canopy, because of the right side was unlevel. There is a great walkway called "alligator alley" by Atalaya that we only discovered by following a Segway tour. The natural areas and interesting and provided great photo ops. I had read reviews on how bad the mosquitoes were, but we didn't experience that at all. The ants however were horrible....they were everywhere in our camper. We travel with a 17 lb dog and she had a great time playing on the beach, which she was able to do all day if it wasn't too hot. Sites 103 - 133 are the much more wooded sites in the campground. We can't wait to come back! This place is a gem! We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had been recommended this campground and came to investigate. It is a large campground that sits about 800 feet from the beach (the beaches were beautiful!). There are 2 beach accesses from the campground. The main loop roads are paved and well maintained. The sites are gravel but hard packed, flat and well maintained. One thing we noticed was that the electrical and water services are not always in the back right side. They are on the right but some are in the middle so you can't back all the way in. Almost every site was taken when we were there but everyone was real nice, vehicles drove slowly, and there was no noise. There is a great bike path up by the entrance road (US-17) that you can take up to restaurants and a great seafood market in Murrells Inlet. There is a nature center, wildlife viewing platforms and daily nature programs June-August in the park as well. The restrooms were fairly clean, but I noticed the showers had a good deal of mildew. The restrooms are kind of dated with a lot of maintenance done and you would think with the amount of money that they make they could update them. Verizon voice and data was 3 bars. OTA TV received channels from Myrtle Beach and Charleston. A very nice campground, and we will definitely be back. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Love this park. Walking distance to the beach and sites are good size with no crowding. Several free things to do in the park. We come back every year for a week or more. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We lucked into this absolute gem of a park trying to escape traffic over Easter weekend. We were here 2 nights at 2 different campsites. The sites are large and well-situated. The campground is along a very wide dune system and so close to the beach you can hear the surf at night. The park is on an "island" with wetlands separating it from the mainland inhabited by many interesting birds and a few alligators. We also saw 2 Painted Buntings. There is a Nature Center, and an empty residence of the original millionaire owners that you can tour. There is a paved bike path to the nearby town of Murrells Inlet with a fabulous seafood store and a bunch of restaurants. The beach is wonderful, and (best of all) dogs are allowed on the beach. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Awesome campground that is exactly as described by prior positive reviews. Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Ocean sounds make for a great night's sleep. Looking forward to our next stay here. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful campground in the state park. Sites are large with plenty of space between sites. Restroom/showers were very clean. Sites fill up quickly with locals, so make reservations early. There are plenty of hiking trails and a nice boardwalk to the beach. We would stay here again. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park on the ocean. One can hear the waves breaking on the beach from many sites. The historic landmark Atalaya winter residence of Archer Huntington can be toured. Brookgreen Gardens are across the highway from the park, easily reached by bicycle, admission good for a week. Nature center, trails, and boardwalks allow close up viewing of migratory birds, alligators, and other marsh wildlife. Paved bicycle path leads to Murrells Inlet that is several miles north of the park with numerous restaurants. Litchfield, south of the park Park store, has wide selection of gifts and some supplies (no dairy except ice cream). Wi-Fi is available at the office/store. Bathhouses are cleaned daily and have tiled showers. One of the nicest state parks I've camped at. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Think this is the best State park CG in SC: and that's a huge compliment! Not sure why the previous post had problems with overhanging limbs: we have a large MH and have never come close to any. The causeway leading to the CG is more than wide enough for two vehicles to pass safely: assuming each takes his half of the road out of the side and not the middle!! Sites are level, some heavily shaded, some with very few trees. Sites in the middle of the CG are best for satellite TV access. The walk to the ocean is quite a distance, even though this CG is on the ocean side of the highway with no other roads to cross. The staff is very courteous and helpful: even when challenged when the CG is full, which it is every weekend Spring - Fall!! Most of us who use this CG love it. Sites are not cramped for space and the facilities are always kept clean. Only thing missing is a playground for the kids!! We return as often as possible and just made our reservations for next year. Do it ASAP because this CG fills up FAST!!! We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We tire of state parks where policy is more important than the customer. There was an RVer who wanted to stay longer and rent the "campground host" spot, since it was going to be empty. The ranger gave him a flat no with no reason. So he had to leave and the spot stayed empty. What a waste! The campground is attractive and clean with some semi-open sites and some wooded sites. There are overhanging branches that hit our motorhome roof on the entry road and on roads within the park. Roads are paved and sites are dirt, mostly level. The only trash receptacle was a full 1/3 mile from our campsite (we paced it off), and there are no dog waste bags or receptacles anywhere. Only a few sites had sewer hookups, but there is a triple dump station at the entry/exit that is in good shape. Watch the entry causeway road; it is very narrow and there are bicyclists on the road. The check-in parking lot has a big tree blocking at least 50% of the access, and you check in behind a long line of people buying supplies at the store. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite parks. About 12 sites have sewer and the rest are electric and water. Pretty scenery and a beautiful ocean beach. All visitors pay a fee to enter park (not campers). There is a locked gate after the park closes. Campers are given the combination to the lock for after hour entrance. There are three bathrooms/shower buildings ranging from new (closest to campground entrance) to old (furthest from the entrance). They are cleaned once or twice a day but not thoroughly. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.
